Memorial Rose Garden Workday a Success!

Thanks to the Santa Clara County Association of Realtors, (SCCAOR), the Jeffrey Fontana Memorial Rose Garden is ready for Spring.  Also adding their assistance were the  Department of Parks, Recreation and Neighborhood Services (PRNS), Martin-Fontana Parks Association members, and other volunteers.

Check out all these hard workers!

Doesn’t that Rose Garden look great. It is a pleasure to work with the SCCAOR group. What enthusiasm, work ethic, dedication and expertise. This group did a beautiful job on the rose garden and completed all within an hour and a half! Thanks too to their families, many of which participated in the workday! It demonstrates yet again the spirit of cooperation and community within the Almaden Valley and shows what can be done if this effort is focused on a quality-of-life project. Peoples spirits will necessarily be raised by the sight of amber, red and white roses as they travel McAbee. We thank the SCCAOR.

Also, I would like to acknowledge Linda Wilson and the folks on the executive committee of MFPA for making all of this possible through their leadership and organization. This group spends several hours a month developing and implementing plans to beautify to the two parks: T.J. Martin and J. Fontana. Also, thank to those regulars that show-up on almost every workday. Chris, Sunny, Pat, Patricia, Pier, Linda, Mike and Dick….. thanks for your contributions to this specific effort.
